About the SPCA

VCU Athletics is partnering with The Center for Human-Animal Interaction (CHAI),  a non-profit 501 (c)(3) in The VCU School of Medicine, in support of CHAI’s mission of improved health and well-being through human-animal interaction. CHAI’s Dogs On Call Program brings therapy dogs to visit patients in the VCU Medical Center. VCU coaches have joined these visits and are very popular with pediatric patients. CHAI conducts groundbreaking research and educates students, healthcare professionals, and the public on the health benefits of pets. Visit www.chai.vcu.edu.
